ice storm update

The storm has passed through. We were very fortunate. Dorothy went to work yesterday after prying loose the frozen doors of her car. The roads were clear most of the way to Tahlequah, but just five miles from our house the trees were crystalline with ice. There was no danger of slipping on the sidewalk or the car sliding into a ditch. Some of Dorothy's workmates lost power and are sleeping in a motel until the electricity is restored. As you can see from the photo, we got a dusting of snow and it's very cold (as I write this it's 19 degrees) but we're safe and warm.

We made it through the same storm that hit you a day earlier. I don't like the cold, but everything looked like it was made of glass..and was gorgeous when the sun would shine on it!
